Considering making a donation today!
We hope you’ll consider making a gift to ABT. Because we simply couldn’t do it without you! It’s true. Without the generous support from our friends ABT could not produce the top-quality performing arts programming you have come to know, expect and deserve. Thank you for your consideration.
Individual Giving When you make a tax-deductible financial contribution to the Arizona Broadway Theatre (ABT Performing Arts Association, Inc.) Annual Fund, you help us create, sustain and strengthen our artistic, educational and cultural mission to provide the finest and most exciting theatre possible – both in our Mainstage productions and children’s programming. With a gift of $50 or more, you will join ABT’s Circle of Friends and receive a host of benefits and privileges exclusively designed with donors in mind. You can take pride in knowing that not only are you supporting a nonprofit cultural institution that creates jobs and bolsters the local economy but you also are helping to ensure the vitality of ABT tomorrow and beyond for your enjoyment and that of your families, friends and neighbors.
ABT welcomes Tribute Gifts made in memory of a loved one or in honor of a birthday, anniversary, graduation, wedding, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and Grandparents’ Day or other special occasion as a unique and thoughtful way to acknowledge a special someone. When you make a Tribute Gift, ABT will send an acknowledgment to the person being honored or to the family of the person being memorialized.
Matching gift companies offer to meet and equal the charitable contributions made by their employees. It’s an easy and thoughtful way for you to maximize the impact of your personal donations. If you work for an organization with a matching gift program, ask your Human Resources office for the form, then complete and send it in with your donation. It will automatically double the impact of your gift and increase your benefits as a member of ABT’s Circle of Friends.
Gifts may be made by:
• Cash, check, credit card
• Gifts of appreciated securities: stocks, bonds, mutual funds and other assets
• Real estate
•Tangible personal property: artwork, collectibles, and other items
• Life insurance
• Closely held business stock
To allow donors to continue their support in an affordable and flexible manner, ABT is pleased to accept and encourages gift installment payments that may be made on a monthly, semi-annual or annual basis.
Corporate/Organizational Giving If your business is seeking creative ways to reach and influence new customers, increase visibility as a leader and supporter of the arts and unique opportunities to thank your clients or employees, you should consider a Standing Ovation Corporate Sponsorship at Arizona Broadway Theatre. By taking advantage of the extensive exposure to the thousands of people who patronize ABT each season, you will realize tangible marketing rewards for your business – raising awareness about your services and products, generating sales and enhancing your client and employee relationships. The theatre provides a variety of sponsorship options and can custom design an individualized sponsorship package to meet your marketing needs, goals and objectives.
A wide variety of Standing Ovation Corporate Sponsorship opportunities are available for Mainstage productions, the Academy for Young Performers programs, Theatre for Young Audiences productions, special events and the ability to personalize and name your very own table.
Gifts-in-Kind ABT is appreciative of the individuals and businesses who donate in-kind goods and services to the theatre. From clothing donations for the Costume Department to special “Wish List” items for the Props Department, and from advertising space to printing services to promote our programs, in-kind donations are important non-cash gifts that help ABT to reduce its expense budget.
